  • 12th- 30th July: Rebels encamped on Mousehold Heath Now numbered around 16,000. Kett produced list of articles, and were anticipating favourable government response. York Herald arrives and offers full pardon to all who disperse and promised to reduce price of wool by one third leading the  rebels to take Norwich. Northampton then arrives with army of 1,800 men Promises full pardon but only 20 disperse. MacCulloch blames Northampton's interventions for the full scale rebellion.
